Subject: Trip east down Wilshire
This travels east along Wilshire, starting near Canon Dr. You can see the former Warner Bros. Theater marquee (and later on its tower), formerly at 9404 Wilshire, on the left, and behind it on the left, the extant Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Compare the beginning to this LA Public Library photo.

The shot continues east on Wilshire, to Robertson, where it makes a mild turn. You can see corner building, during the turn, at this LA Public Library photo.
